The Red Sox traded pitcher Bronson Arroyo to the Cincinnati Reds today for outfielder Wily Mo Pena. As difficult as it is to see Bronson get traded, I think that this was an inevitable move by the Sox. With a surplus of pitching, someone had to go. I know a lot of people don't think very highly of Matt Clement, but I think that he has the capability to be lights out. Bronson, on the other had, will be a solid 4 or 5 guy in a rotation and probably not much more than that.
And if anything, the Sox unloading another pitcher may mean that they are even more serious about getting Clemens....time to fire up the hot stove again!
